Was in Glasgow tonight to watch Celtic play.. Not the most exciting game but ticked off a bucket list thing for me.

Walked past a statue of someone who knew a bit about winning at a club that knows a bit about winning.

Thought of some of the things that Mr Jonas and others have said recently.

Apologies for the photo taken on my Samsung potato when it was 30 degrees cooler than adelaide.

Why is there so much hate for Jonas?

Each time i watch him he puts it all on the line, he mightn't be the most talented player, but always seems to give his best, crashes blokes over, helps out teammates and has to put up with continually being out of position due to our turnover riddled midfield burning the footy as we all stream forward.

Hes the least of our problems, imho
A fit Jonas is a solid player ... a captain Jonas? That is a different beast - His stocks have crashed! If he was listed on the stock exchange, he would be in a trading halt as they call in the administrators to sort the mess out!

Have we thought about perhaps bringing in a successful captain from another club?

Not only is there a greyhound named Tex Walker but Ted owns, or part owns, a few racing greyhounds himself. At least he and Hinkley would have something in common unlike Jonas.

Hope you enjoyed your time in Glasgow. Had a few days there, before going to Edinburgh by train. Good trip that.

Lol we are gonna keep co-captains in our 150th and it's going to be terrible.

They'll delay the news until well after renewal.
They're more actively targeting interstate supporters this year but they should have started doing that 5 years ago while the goodwill extended to Hinkley was at a relative high. So they'll definitely be holding off on telling supporters that they're going to keep screwing tradition in the year where they really should be honoring it.

“If we won the flag last year, no one would be talking about it.”

Tom, you didn’t even make finals.
You came tenth, out of eighteen teams.
You sold us the Co-captain model based on ‘more success’.
You trashed a club tradition because you weren’t up to it on your own.
The other half captain took the piss out of the club in the Pre-season and then again during trade week.

That’s why we are talking about it, you deluded fu**.
Wonderful summation

fu** even Ted had the presence of mind to step down.
You don't honestly believe that Ted made that decision himself without it being strongly suggested that it was in his best interest?

The Camry Crows had a dilemma in that they couldn't replace him as captain because he was chosen by Phil Walsh but they couldn't get him to quit so they made him a co-captain with Sloane. They would have convinced him that he'd cop it in the external review and that it would most likely recommend he be sacked as co-captain.

Very different from the situation at Ports where the administration and board are supportive of both of our half-captaincy.

It doesn’t matter what I believe or the circumstances. What does matter is that action was taken and the Crows will have a superior leadership structure in 2020 while we appear set to maintain course.

You said Ted had presence of mind :p

Apparently Ted was pretty chuffed that he got a pass in his IQ test until someone told him it wasn't out of 100.
